  • Summary:

    The Book of Order of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is a dynamic document that reflects the historic and ongoing struggles of a people trying to faithfully live out the gospel message. In this book, William Chapman takes a fresh look at the history and theology that under-gird the Book of Order, using the “Historic Principles of Church Order” as the framework for discussing the issues of church life. His “constitutional approach” helps us examine the Scriptures and the confessions that illuminate the text of the Book of Order.
